I live in Portland, Oregon. Home of beautiful green trees, oceans, rivers, mountains, and rain. Lots of rain. And any good Oregonian worth their salt has a good raincoat, because we most definitely DON’T use umbrellas. Umbrellas are a sign of weakness in the eyes of my fellow-Oregonians. A quality raincoat is a good investment if you live in a climate that is no stranger to rain, so I thought I would share a roundup of a few of my favorite women’s raincoats.
And yes … you could just go to your nearest outdoor store and choose a raincoat that would be super functional, but it also probably wouldn’t be that cute. My picks offer a hybrid of fashion and function for those of us who aren’t “REI/camping/outdoorsy girls.” My criteria were that the coats had to have a flattering fit, a hood (because, well, it’s a raincoat, though you would be surprised how many “raincoats” don’t have hoods!) and the coats earned bonus points for cute detailing. Check ‘em out!
